Global Traveler Names Airline and Hotel of the Year

Press Releases

Global Traveler, the only magazine for frequent luxury travelers, announces Singapore Airlines as the 2022 Airline of the Year and Waldorf Astoria Hotels and Resorts as the 2022 Hotel of the Year. This marks the 12th year Global Traveler has awarded Airline and Hotel of the Year nods.

Singapore Airlines celebrates 75 years of service alongside its Airline of the Year nod. The airline boasts a long history of accolades, superlatives and forward-thinking innovation. Among some of its achievements, Singapore Airlines was the first to launch audio and visual on-demand systems for all classes of service, and the first to fly the Airbus A350.

Waldorf Astoria Hotels and Resorts’ illustrious history dates back to 1893, when New York City’s Waldorf-Astoria stood as the pinnacle of luxury. Today, the brand looks to make its Australia debut in Sydney, and its Vietnam debut in Hanoi, both coming in 2025, among others. Each new property continues to honor the brand’s heritage by keeping personalized, elegant service at its core.

“Through the best and worst of times, Singapore Airlines and Waldorf Astoria Hotels and Resorts remain as icons of the travel industry — really setting the standards as leaders in aviation and hospitality,” said Francis X. Gallagher, publisher and CEO, Global Traveler. “It’s an honor to recognize these two superstars, as they truly deserve all the accolades and awards. Congratulations, we can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2023.”

To award the prestigious honor each year, a select group of Global Traveler staff, Advisory Board members and those on our subscriber Globility Board choose the winners through a series of considerations and factors. Pertinent information considered included financial data, occupancy rates, load factors, on-time figures, safety records and menus, as well as independent research. Once an airline or hotel is selected, it is ineligible to participate for three years.

The winners will be feted at a celebration Dec. 6, at The Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles. For more information on Singapore Airlines and Waldorf Astoria Hotels and Resorts, check out the December issue of Global Traveler. For more information about Global Traveler, visit globaltravelerusa.com.
